-You will join us for our weekly Monday rehearsals (we run off of the Bethel School District school calendar... if there is no school for the district on a specific Monday, then there is no Vivace! rehearsal that day. See our online calendar and rehearsal memos for specifics).
-You will have a GREAT TIME being a part of a high-caliber, fun music mentoring program! And we hope you and your family will get involved with the many volunteer opportunities that the Vivace! Choral Program offers!

Vivace! choirs have been featured in concert at The Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception and The Washington National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.; the Abbey Bach Festival in Mt. Angel, Oregon; and in cathedrals from Seattle to San Francisco along America’s scenic West Coast. The Cathedrals Choir performed in Austria at the Mozart Festival in Salzburg and Vienna, with additional formal concerts at Melk Abbey and the Matthias Church in Budapest, Hungary. The choir has also been featured in the Seattle Symphony’s Benaroya Hall and Tacoma’s Pantages Theater. Singers have performed with the Tacoma Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Maestro Harvey Felder and under the direction of Dr. Geoffrey Boers of the University of Washington. Vivace! choirs have also been featured in concert with the inimitable Peter Schickele, a.k.a. P.D.Q. Bach. They have appeared several times on classical radio broadcasts and have been featured in Seattle’s Argosy Christmas Ship Festivals.

The Vivace! Choral Program offers a continuous and comprehensive 4th-12th grade mixed choral experience for students as a supplement to the musical offerings of the regular school day.

Vivace! uses a strong educational mentoring model, in which each choir is “mentored” by students from the next level in the organization. Additionally, a small number of novice educators and college students who plan to teach music are selected as section leaders for the Cathedrals Choir.

While students receive instruction in vocal technique, theory, history, movement and performance, Vivace! provides young music educators the opportunity to practice and hone their artistic skills in a nurturing environment. The choristers perform a wide variety of music; from the sophisticated motet to satisfyingly silly and choreographed pieces. Always delightful, Vivace! choirs invite, inspire and entertain all.
